ive just recently been diagnosed and was put on prednisone and another steroid, they are tapering me off the prednisone for many reasons which im not sure of, one being you cant be on it long term not sure why, and the other is it played havoc with my blood sugar levels as im diabetic, it sure helped with my mobility though so im kinda sad to see it go . I never felt better then I did while on it, I was functioning at a high level for the first time in ages. I s there anything else I may be able to take that would improve my mobility , it sure was nice to feel great again lol.
